#TwitterTrouble

November 10, 2011

Here's another reminder that you don't even have to tweet anything controversial to get into trouble on Twitter; a lesson Rep. Jay Inslee's, D-Wash., gubernatorial campaign learned the hard way. The AP:

Campaign officials for the Democratic gubernatorial candidate said Thursday that a technical glitch led his Twitter account to follow a promoter of an Internet porn company. Inslee spokeswoman Jaime Smith says a volunteer had set up a program to automatically identify Twitter users who may be useful to engage on the social networking site.

A Republican source passes along a screenshot of the profile Inslee was following. He was one of five followers of the account, but no longer follows it.
